  1. Very nice ghazal poetry.
    I am sharing some of my favorite ghazal poetry here.

    Qurbaton mein bhee judai key zamanay mangay
    Dil woh be-mehar ke ronay key bahanay mangay

    Hum na hotay tu kisi aur key charchay hotay
    Khulqat-e-shaher tu kehnay ko fasanay mangay

    Yahi dil tha ke tarasta tha marasim key liay
    Abb yahi tarkey-taaluq key bahanay mangay

    Apna yah haal keh ji haar chukay lut bhi chukay
    Aur mohubaat wohee andaaz puranay mangay

    Dil kisi haal pah qane`h hi nahin jaan-e-FARAZ
    Mil gaay tum bhee tu kaya aur na janay mangay
